"I failed my drug test I think for Xanax," Griffin said. "I had a doctor's prescription, I was just, I didn't do it before the fight, I did it the night before, I was nervous and I couldn't sleep."

Wait, how could the UFC keep the commission from making that public? The commissions always make everything like this public.

Is the PA commission just that bush league? Maybe it can give Texas a run for it's money.

Herring In A Fur Coat - Is there no athletic comission in PA?

I'm pretty sure they have an AC, but from what I recall they have such strict privacy policies that information like this is almost never released.

Didn't they run in to an issue releasing information in regard to Marquardt failing his prefight test/medicals?

UFC definitely protects some fighters. Especially those popular with the fans.

Wow if true, crazy.

Did he say if it was Dr. Perscribed or did he take it illegally?

Goderson Silva - What's Xanax?

 

Anxiety medication, and if I'm not mistaken, the most abused scrip in the our nation (not saying Forest didn't have a prescription, just stating facts).

 

Chills you the f' out big time.

I wonder if he is being fecetious just to joke around about how much slower he was than Anderson...

 

Anyone actually listen to the interview that can speak to how genuine he sounded? I cannot listen at work...

It wouldn't suprise me knowing Forrest's sense of humor.

Goderson Silva - What's Xanax?
It's a drug out of the benzodiazepine family that is often prescribed for anxiety. It (long story short) causes a kind of sedation and is often kind of a memory-eraser. This is outrageous if true, that's a dangerous drug to take in any combat sport. Wow. Phone Post

Yah. You have to consider this is the guy who said he enjoys going to UFC fights on acid. But then again... we don't know if he was joking about that, either.
